Prenatal and Postnatal Massage

Healing touch for the body and soul

During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes significant changes to support the growing foetus and prepare for childbirth. These changes include hormonal shifts, enlargement of the uterus, musculoskeletal adjustments, and more. As your body adapts to these changes, you may experience discomfort in various areas, along with disrupted sleep due to increased night urination, which can lead some mothers to feel lethargic or moody. Prenatal and postnatal massages usually help ease body soreness and related symptoms.

To provide a holistic journey for our mothers, Xpress Confinement collaborates with partners to offer both massage services. Prenatal massage provides relief for expectant mothers by alleviating discomfort and stress during pregnancy, while postnatal massage aids in the recovery journey after childbirth. Both massages are designed to support your overall well-being throughout the transformative stages of pregnancy and motherhood.

Benefits of Prenatal Massage

Stress Reduction

Pregnancy can be a demanding period, especially for mothers who need to manage other children and a household. Prenatal massage can help reduce stress, foster relaxation, and release tension for the expectant mother.

Enhanced Circulation

Many expectant mothers experience water retention in different parts of their bodies. Massage helps increase blood and lymph circulation, which can reduce swelling and enhance overall bodily functions.

Pain Alleviation

Prenatal massage helps ease common pregnancy-related discomforts such as lower back pain, sciatic nerve pain, and muscle tension, as carrying a baby adds stress and weight to an expectant mother’s joints.

Improved Sleep Quality

Massage can help regulate hormone levels, such as adrenaline and cortisol, which may influence sleep patterns during pregnancy. It can also trigger the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain relievers and mood enhancers, fostering relaxation and improving sleep quality.

Benefits of Postnatal Massage

Promotes Healing

Postnatal massage can help in easing the healing process by improving blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, reducing swelling, and promoting tissue repair.

Relieves Muscle Tension

Labour is an intense process for a woman’s body to go through. Postnatal massage helps to relieve soreness and muscle tension post-delivery, enabling a smoother transition into caring for your baby.

Reduces Stress and Anxiety

Post-delivery, there can be a quick drop in oestrogen and progesterone, which may trigger the ‘baby blues’. Postnatal massage assists in reducing stress and anxiety levels during this period.

Supports Milk Production

Many mothers are anxious about their milk supply. Postnatal massage, especially around the breast and chest areas, can stimulate milk production and alleviate discomfort or engorgement.
